Ohio State Meets Chicago
In March Toward Big
CHICAGO, Nov. 8. - () - The big
three of the Big Ten gridiron title
struggle, Minnesota, Ohio State and
Michigan, charge out tomorrow to
defend their positions, and there is
nothing in the evidence to indicate
they shouldn't succeed.
The Gophers, who haven't dropped
a decision since the final game of the
1932 season when Michigan won, 3 to
0 on Harry Newman's field goal, ap-
parently face the toughest job of the
trio in meeting Iowa at Iowa City.
The Hawkeyes were held to a 6-6 tie
by Indiana last week, but the field
was muddy, and with a dry track, Oze
Simmons, Dick Crayne and the rest
of the Iowa backs may be able to
cause Minnesota some inconvenience
Gophers Are Favored
Minnesota, which has gathered mo-
mentum with each game this sea-
son, has earned the right to be called
the favorite, and anything but a
Gopher victory would be an upset.
Minnesota's long defeatless span cov-
ers 21 games, including four ties in
Ohio State, its dream of national
championship honors shattered in a
few mad minutes by Notre Dame last
week, is expected to bounce back at
the expense of Chicago's brave little
band. On form, the Buckeyes figure
up as definitely superior, unless Coach
Francis Schmidt's aggregation has
failed to recover from last week's
The Maroons, however, fortified
by two weeks of practice for the test,
will be at their best form of the sea-
son. Coach Clark Shaughnessy has,
had ample time to augment his of-
fense by the use of Omar Fareed as a
forward passer, giving the opposition
someone beside Jay Berwanger to,
Sharing attention with the Minne-
sota-Iowa battle, Northwestern and
Notre Dame will have it out again at)
South Bend. The Irish, of course,
will be favored, but a letdown as the1
result of last week's heroic work att
Ohio State might help the Wildcats1
to their first victory over Notre Dame

volved in the championship battle,j
tangle at Madison, while Indiana en-
gages in a little intersectional busi-
ness at Maryland.
May Fill Renner's
Shoes Next Year
By RICHARD SIDDER
Passing has always been an integral
part of the Michigan grid system, so
far-sighted observers are looking
around for talent to replace Captain
Bill Renner on next year's team. At
present Johnny Smithers seems to
have the inside track, but if some-
one else could do the passing,
Johnny's fine blocking would be made
For the past week the physical
education freshmen have been run-
ning Illinois plays against the Varsity
and one man, Alex Loiko, has stood
out for his fine passing and all-
According to Wally Weber he can
do everything well. He is a good
punter, an excellent blocker, an able
pass receiver, a very fine passer and
his high knee action and change of
pace marks him as a bad man to
bring down. He can play at any
backfield post or at end and still
feel perfectly at home. When ques-
tioned as to whether he preferred
any particular position he answered,
"As long as it's football, I don't care
where they put me."
Alex is a product of Hamtramck
high school in suburban Detroit
where he was coached by Hal Shields,
one of the leading high school
coaches in the country. In his jun-
ior year he was named as a flanker
on the All-State team.
All-State in 1934
The following season found a
dearth of backfield material at Ham-
tramck, so Loiko volunteered to try
his hand at the halfback post. As
a result of his stellar play, which
brought his team the city\ champion-
ship, Alex was again selected to an
All-State post, this time in the back-
It is true that men who flash a
considerable amount of ability in the
fall are liable to fade out or be shoved
into obscurity by better players dur-
ing spring practice and in their soph-
omore year, but it is the guess of
most people who have -seen Loiko in

EAST LANSiNG, Nov. 8.- (k') -
The Marquette University football
team, that has forward passed its way
to victory over everything it has met
this season, arrives today for Satur-
day's homecoming game with the
Spartans of Michigan State.
It was a defiant troop of Spartans
that found itself on the short end
of the odds for the games that will
dedicate Macklin Field before a ca-
pacity crowd of 20,000 spectators.
They clicked in high gear at last
nights' heavy duty practice, raining
accurate forward passes across the
field as they prepared to "fight fire

Instead of the usual gayety, the squad

cognizant that for the first time this

After Wednesday's perfet practice,
the squad presented a contrast in
handling new defensive assignments.
Some seemed uncertain of their tasks,
but this caused no undue worry, the

Naming Victor Of Game Today
Coach John 'Johnstone named his
permanent varsity and freshman ten-
nis squad roster Monday. The varsity
squad is composed of 10 men, four
of whom were members of the fresh-
man squad last year. Six men make
up the present freshman squad.
Those named on the Varsity squad
by Coach Johnstone are Leonard Ver-
dier, Jack Thom, Mischa Barowski,
Ted Fraser, Captain Howie Kahn,
Ted Rodriguez, Jarvis Dean, Miller
Sherwood, Cecil Young, and Jesse
Flick. Kahn, Rodriguez, Dean, and
Sherwood were letter men last year.
Thom, Barowski, Fraser, and Verdier
are sophomores, all of whom won
their numerals on the freshman team
Those comprising the freshman
squad are: EddiePayne, Grand Rap-
ids; Art Bullock, Grand Rapids; Bill
Mills, Grosse Pointe; Sam Low,
Brooklyn, N. Y.; Bill Smith, Mus-
kegon; and Ed. Morris, Youngstown,
0. Coach John Johnstone expressed
the opinion that this year's squad
of yearlings is the most promising he
has had in a number of years.
Coach Johnstone has been drilling
his men daily in the Intramural Gym.
The practice sessions will continue all
this winter in preparation for a stiff
campaign next spring.

I-M Sports I
Theta Chi defeated Phi Beta Delta
in a hotly contested speedball game
Thursday afternoon to annex the fa-
vored position in the tourney. Scor-
ing sprees in the second and final
periods enabled Theta Chi to emerge
on the long end of a 12-8 score. Nine
tallies were made from penalty kicks
and the victors obtained six of them
with an accurate display of booting.
Bill Wells was the high scorer with
five points as he and Rod and Doc
Howell starred for the winners. Her-
man Fishman and Leonard Meldman
were best for the losers.

Tradition versus relative ability
will be the topic of today's grid bat-
tle between Illinois and Michigan in
the opinion of many of the country's
leading football experts.
Michigan and Illinois have come toI
recognize in one another rivals whose
strength can never be accurately pre-
Scrappy, light Illinois teams that
haven't done a thing all year make
it a practice to attack strong Michi-
gan teams with a ferocious deceptiv-
ness whch has more than once caused
the Wolverines considerable em-
In the same manner, Michigan
teams have entered games against
the Zuppke men with their famed
prayers conceeded as the only possible
weapon with which they could escape
Watch 'Flea Flicker'
Today Illinois' biggest threat lies
in the tradition which has grown up
around Illinois-Michigan games. De-
spite the vaunted Illini attack with
its spread and its 'Flea Flicker,' de-
spite the redoubtable Les Lindberg
who will do the quarterbacking, de-
spite the two senior tackles Arvo An-
tilla and Captain Chuck Gilbraith,
Illinois has little chance of beating
Michigan according to many ex-
Bob Zuppke, the crafty mentor who
has been guiding the gridiron destin-
ies of Illini. teams for a good many
years, has developed a habit of placing
so much emphasis on his strong points
that few teams have been able to ob-
serve his weak ones. This year Zup
has ballyhooed his fast, light team
and once again warned opponents of
the possibilities of the 'Flea Flicker.'
But Zup hasn't said much of any-
thing about his defense, and the
reason is that so far this season the
Illini haven't had any.
The nation's fraternity of sports
writers joined together in acclaiming
the Illini one of the country's leading
teams when Zuppke took his squad
out to the coast to shellack a heavy
Southern California eleven. 19-0.
But after every other team on the
coast had beaten the Trojans, the
sports writers began to recollect that
Illinois beat Southern California on
breaks, two blocked punts to be spe-
Illinois then proceeded to drop its
Conference opener to Iowa, 19-0.
But the interesting fact is that the
Hawks in addition to three touch-
downs made 233 yards and 12 first
downs by rushing. Last week a North-
western team which has not been
an offensive powerhouse, beat the
Zuppke men, 10-3, and in so doing
made 253 yards and 14 first downs
Today it is the defense which is
Zuppke's weak point. Michigan has
a capable offense that ought to keep
the Illini busy all afternoon. While
Les Lindebrg is a dangerous back
and will be a constant threat, he can
hardly be considered in the same
category as Al Barabas and Bill Kur-
lish, both of whom the Wolverines
have managed to subdue.

DON COSSACK RUSSIAN MALE CHORUS is unique,
from the standpointshboth of origin and of accomplish-
ment. Prisoners of war when the Russian Imperial forces were
overcome, they "whiled away their time" in a prison camp by
singing simple choral music. Then under the Maagnetic influ-
ence of their diminutive but dynamic leader, SERGE JAROFF,
they undertook more serious music. Without music books or
instruments, they attempted to substitute for an army band.
They attracted the attention of their captors and were ex-
tended some few courtesies. After their release they could not
return to their native land because they had been expatriated,
As a group they did "church singing" in one of the Balkan
cathedrals and soon were in demand for concerts. Their tours
spread throughout central Europe with ever-increasing en-
thusiasm. Their short trips to America on several occasions
have been in the nature of triumphal marches. Their pro-
grams of sacred music, folk tunes, and stirring soldier songs
